Down to the wire


Workers move boxes of test booklets and answer sheets for the College Scholastic Ability Test yesterday, which is scheduled for Thursday, at a printing plant in Sejong City. During Korean listening tests, scheduled between 8:35 a.m. and 8:58 a.m., and English listening tests, to be administered from 1:05 p.m. to 1:35 p.m., all jets near the 1,191 testing sites will be banned from taking off and landing. All flights already underway must maintain altitude of at least three kilometers (1.86 miles). Subway and bus service will be increased from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. in Seoul to better transport CSAT takers to their testing sites. Vehicles run by district offices and community centers with the signs “For CSAT Students” will assist in taking students to testing sites. Devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras are strictly prohibited from exam rooms. If found with them, students will have their test scores nullified. A total of 171 students’ exams were canceled due to mobile phones last year. All students taking the exam must enter testing sites by 8:10 a.m. on Thursday. By Kim Seong-tae
